Share Your World – 2015 Week #4

playskool-professionsWhere did you live at age five?  Is it the same place or town you live now?

You are invited to a party that will be attended by many fascinating people you never met.  Would you attend this party if you were to go by yourself?

Did you grow up in a small or big town? Did you like it?

As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

I sincerely hope you enjoy my questions for this week and find the questions interesting enough to play along.   If you ever want me to ask anything specific, please feel free to contact me.  You don’t think a lot about these questions, unless of course it is FUN for you.  Simply dream and just let loose, or you let your alter ego answer if you want.   Have a fabulous week everyone!!

Even though I oftentimes will add photos to my answers, it is not a requirement to participate in Share your World.

I will post four different questions each week for you to answer.  There are two ways which you can participate.

  1. Create a  Share Your World  post.  Then post the link to your blog in my comment box or leave your answers in the comments box of my blog.
  2. To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “Share Your World” tag.
  3. Remember to Follow My Blog to get your weekly reminders.

I usually will respond to your entry on your blog, rather than on my page.

Here are my answers.

fsm91_047147Where did you live at age five?  Is it the same place or town you live now?  I lived in a little town on Lake Superior called Tofte, Minnesota.  We lived at the Ranger Station.  They had four houses for the forest rangers that lived in that area.  Here is a photo I found on the web of the ranger station as it is now.  So this should have been real close to where I lived.

We within walking distance to Lake Superior, the largest of the Great Lakes.  This is another photo I found on the web of that area.  No I no longer lived there.  We moved to southern California when I was 9 years old.

You are invited to a party that will be attended by many fascinating people you never met.  Would you attend this party if you were to go by yourself?  This is not a great question to ask an introvert.  Or maybe it is, because the answer is simple.  No I probably would not attend.  Although I was once asked to go to an open house party by Marilyn VanDerbur and I did go.  It was a magical day for me, and worthy of a post someday.

Did you grow up in a small or big town? Did you like it?  This really goes along with where did you live at age 5.  I have gone back to my roots and live in small towns.  Although Canby, the town I live in now, is huge compared to Tofte, Minnesota who had a total of 256 residents in 2010.

As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?  When I was in elementary school I wanted to be a teacher.  I was always ahead in my studies and helped other kids with their work.  I so enjoyed that.  In high school, I wanted to be a report and become editor in chief of the LA Times.

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?  Last week I had fun with Chris at St John’s Bridge and we also went to a nursery for the very first springtime flowers.  So photographically I had a wonderful week last week.  This next week, I have a qigong class starting and I always enjoy those.

Qi (energy) hugs,

      1. That sounds like something I would do – I still get lost quite a bit 😉 I wouldn’t mind getting lost in the woods though – especially if they were familiar. I can just imagine the adventures!

  1. From years 0-19 I lived in Mexico City, so I definitely grew up in a big town haha and I did like it very much. As a kid I wanted to have a famous band and make an album with 12 songs. I also wanted to be a cook. Later I wanted to study hotel management and work at the ice hotel in Finland. I also wanted to be a ballerina. In High School I decided I wanted to be a filmmaker and that’s what I studied in college. 🙂

  3. As a kid I remember thinking that it would be fun to live at one of the ranger’s stations because they were all in such beautiful areas. I’ve never been to the great lakes and I’m always amazed at how much they look like the ocean in photos. Lakes that huge are just unimaginable to me!

    1. I remember visiting some family in New Mexico while we lived on Lake Superior. My relatives were so proud of a little lake/large pond that was in their area. My mom told both me and my sister to say we really thought their “Lake” was gorgeous and pretty. My relatives had always lived in New Mexico and had no idea what Minnesota was like with all their lakes, let alone the Great Lakes.

      1. LOL! Their little lake must have looked like a mud puddle compared to Lake Superior. It’s funny how what you grow up with can seem normal to you, even if it’s very unique.

  4. I wanted to be a teacher, too. When I first went to college, I took journalism, thinking that I would become a photo journalist. That was one in a long line of college majors.

  5. 1. Where did you live till age 5?
    On 2 places and stayed on a third one for a bit. I lived with my grandparents and godparents in a village. I played with my cousin who was like my twin brother. WHen I was 3 my mum took me to the town.I started a nursery, was alone a lot as my mum was a single mum. I developed 2 serious illnesses and stayed a lot in a hospital where nobody understood me (I was a kid who spoke a minority language and nobody knew what I was talking about).I am in that town now, but as I llived on other, bigger places I can’t really find myself here.(Well, I’ve always felt an outsider here anyway)
    2. Party question
    I would go. Would be nervous a bit, but I can chat to a stone, so it won’t be a problem to talk to anyone. I traveled a lot on my own too. Magical things happen than.
    3. My town was small and everything seemed so close. Everyone knew each other.I didn’t think about it as good or bad. I didn’t know any other places. I was busy growing up, having friends and so on.Things have changed since.The town is different, people moved. It feels like a new place with old memories.
    4. I remember that when I was 10 I said I want to be a writer. Not a journalist, a writer. The one who writes books. Later on I wanted to be other things or nothing at all. Strangely enough I love telling stories and started to write a few years ago. No book yet, but who know maybe one day I will be fortunate enough to have it printed.
    5.I feel grateful for the trust I have from my friends. My friend’s dad passed away last week and she called the next day to share it with me. It is sad to hear such things, but as we say friend in need is a friend indeed.
    Next week I am looking forward to teaching my friend and her daughter how to skate.
